As reported in the June 3 edition of the Legislative Update, H.B. 1781 is a bill that eliminates various state agency reporting requirements.  Of interest to many cities, the bill eliminates the requirement that cities: (1) that impose an impact fee submit a written certification verifying compliance with the impact fee law to the attorney general each year not later than the last day of the city's fiscal year under Texas Local Government Code Section 395.082; and (2) that utilize tax increment financing submit reports relating to tax increment financing to the attorney general under Texas Tax Code Section 311.016(b)(1) (the report must still be prepared for other entities).

TML member cities may use the material herein for any purpose. No other person or entity may reproduce, duplicate, or distribute any part of this document without the written authorization of the Texas Municipal League.
